Why Tentmakers Network?

The Great Commission is every Christian’s call to witness to and embody the good news of Christ’s life, death, and resurrection. However, Christian missions are struggling to reach the whole world. There are many reasons for this, including Christians falling short in investing their time and Christian missions working in environments of scarcity.

This especially includes fractional missionaries—those who don’t have the ability to conduct full-time missionary work, but whose skills would be an incredibly valuable resource to mission organizations even in a part-time capacity.

Tentmakers Network seeks to break down the most stubborn barriers to active engagement by creating a software platform where Christians, faith-based nonprofits, churches, and other groups looking to further the Great Commission can connect with each other to more efficiently put Christian resources to use.

Background

Tentmakers Network began as a thought experiment: How can we more effectively connect ourselves and our peers with faith-based organizations working to advance the Great Commission? This thought experiment became a strategic plan, that strategic plan led to full-time team members, and those team members are now poised to hit the ground running with an app connecting Christians and volunteer efforts around the world.
